Superman is fighting with Batman. Why? I don’t know, it’s complicated … and fantastic! It’s all part of a new video game that just so happens to feature a certain CW stud.
Stephen Amell, star of The CW’s “Arrow” is voicing a downloadable character skin for the upcoming NetherRealm Studios game “Injustice: Gods Among Us.”
The game’s social media team released a screenshot of the character skin on Twitter back in February, but TV Guide’s Rich Sands broke the news of Amell’s voice and likeness being used. Amell confirmed the fact shortly after by retweeting it and posting it on his Facebook page.
The game allows players to choose from characters from DC Comics including Aquaman, Bane, Batman, The Flash, Superman and many more. Not a newcomer to the fighting game genre, NetherRealm Studios are famous for their “Mortal Kombat” games.
An online promotion for the game allows fans to determine the winners of a bracket style combat tournament between the Injustice DC characters. Amell breaks down the virtual matchup of Hawk Girl vs. Green Arrow during a video interview posted to YouTube. Don’t worry. He’s not biased at all.
Injustice: Gods Among Us will be available April 16 for PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U.
Detroiters can catch “Arrow” on CW50 Wednesdays at 8 p.m.
